Xbox Live’s Free Games with Gold for the month of August will include Xbox One titles WWE 2K16 and Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate as well as ports of Xbox 360 games Spelunky and Beyond Good and Evil HD.
Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate will be available for free download for the entire month of August, while WWE 2K16 will be available from August 16-September 15, Spelunky will be available from August 1-15, and Beyond Good and Evil HD will be available for the latter half of the month.
The appeal of WWE 2K16 is fairly self-explanatory: either you’re a fan of pro wrestling or you’re not. The other games, on the other hand, don’t quite fall into niche categories. Warriors Orochi 3 Ultimate was meant as a crossover of the Dynasty Warriors and Samurai Warriors games, so it’s good for some button-mashing hack-and-slash combat, which any gamer can appreciate from time to time. Beyond Good and Evil was an unexpected cult hit from the Xbox/PS2/GameCube era, and most who’ve played it sing its praises until the end of time. The game in this bunch that piques my interest the most, however, is Spelunky, since its old school style of gameplay brings me back to what I love most in games.
